The FreeCAD Project Association is pleased to announce the creation of the FPA Development Fund (FPADF). The FPADF offers grants to individuals for contributions to FreeCAD. Grants are currently capped at US$1000 and will be awarded only for work on the FreeCAD code base.
Any contributor who wishes to be considered for a grant should submit a proposal in writing to the FPA. The proposal should state clearly how much money is requested and what the contributor intends to create/improve/fix. An estimated timeline with major milestones should be included along with clear completion criteria.
Proposals will be considered by the FPA general body and approved by vote.
The FreeCAD Project Association would like to expand the number and type of grants given. Donations made to the FPA and designated DEVELOPMENT FUND will be used for this purpose.
If you would like to see more sponsored development, please consider donating to the FPA.
